Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Upper Thames forms a unique and attractive part of our national heritage. Together with other water bodies within the catchment, the Upper Thames and its tributaries are valuable as fisheries and for wildlife conservation, as a source of water for potable supply, and as a resource extensively used for recreation and navigation. This Action Plan, its vision and the activities it contains, can only be achieved if the participants work with and influence others who also have an interest in the future well-being of the Upper Thames catchment. While the vision is, by its nature, not constrained by practicalities of budgets and resources, the activity plan sets out our firm proposals for the delivery of real, sustainable improvements to the local water environment as the first steps towards that vision. The Upper Thames is an important part of our heritage and this CMP provides a blueprint for the future. The NRA, in partnership with local communities, will use this CMP to ensure that improvements in the local water environment are achieved and that good progress is made towards the vision.
